Synopsis

The author of five blockbuster novels, Emily Giffin, delivers an unforgettable story of two women, the families that make them who they are, and the longing, loyalty and love that binds them together
 
 
Marian Caldwell is a thirty-six year old television producer, living her dream in New York City. With a fulfilling career and satisfying relationship, she has convinced everyone, including herself, that her life is just as she wants it to be. But one night, Marian answers a knock on the door . . . only to find Kirby Rose, an eighteen-year-old girl with a key to a past that Marian thought she had sealed off forever. From the moment Kirby appears on her doorstep, Marian’s perfectly constructed world—and her very identity—will be shaken to its core, resurrecting ghosts and memories of a passionate young love affair that threaten everything that has come to define her.
 
For the precocious and determined Kirby, the encounter will spur a process of discovery that ushers her across the threshold of adulthood, forcing her to re-evaluate her family and future in a wise and bittersweet light. As the two women embark on a journey to find the one thing missing in their lives, each will come to recognize that where we belong is often where we least expect to find ourselves—a place that we may have willed ourselves to forget, but that the heart remembers forever.

    Easy read..!

    "Where we belong" by Emily Giffin is a well written story about two women. On one side, Marian's life is seemingly perfect. She is a 36 year old successful television producer in New York and dating the perfect man. But her perfect world is turned upside down when her biggest secret, an unplanned child she gave up for adoption 18 years ago, shows up at her door. On the other side, Kirby is understandably dealing with the "Why don't I fit in?" "Where do I come from?" "What do I want to do with my life?" questions that you'd expect from an adopted teenager. Kirby's appearance makes Marian question her own life, her past choices and whether her present happiness is real or surreal. Alternating between Marian and Kirby’s points of view, it’s easy to get pulled into the story. As a reader I felt and understood the emotions of both main characters but I felt a little disappointed with the ending, I like knowing instead of speculating, an epilogue would've being great. Overall I liked the book and I do recommend because it is an easy read.

    Emily Giffin at her best. A situation I am sure a lot of people have nagging at them....what do you do when that knock comes at your door. Done well...enjoyed immensely.
